shake it out

you know how sometimes you'll have a friendship
that stays with you for the many years of your life,
even though it gets beat up from the rocks in the road
and the changes that both lives take? i have one of
those that's lasted 23 years so far, and this week
i got to have a conversation that shook out the rug
and helped us move into being our current selves in
our current friendship. because for the the past few
years, it's been kind of painful and awkward.
i don't know what will happen next, but i feel hopeful.
